This year, though, I've been to three. Three memorial services for three very loved and wanted babies... babies who were known before their birth to have some sort of malformation that made them "incompatible with life".
First there was our own little Noah Tobias in April. Then Emma Grace in June. On Tues the big kids and I went to support the family of Sarah Faith as they said goodbye. As we released balloons for Sarah (and for Noah), we said a little prayer that seems very appropriate to say for all three of these very loved little ones:
Shalom, Noah, Emma and Sarah
